28. Out with the Old and In with the New
I haven't seen Delilah in 2 months. I think she went home for Christmas. I also haven't seen Holly much. I will send Hedwig to her soon. Everyone seems to be avoiding me except Ron and Hermione. I think i am quite over Delilah. I am now kinda into Romilda Vane, a very pretty first year. She follows me a little bit so i have decided to ask her out when I get my chance. I find Romilda's best friend to give me the book she is reading. I duplicate it and cut out a square of the copy. I scribbled out 5 words on a small piece of parchment and sign it with my name. I place it in the book carefully and shut it. I give the copy to her friend and tell her not to open it. Romilda comes through the Common Room door, smiles at me and goes up to her dorm. She comes down holding the book. She sits down and opens the book. She slams it shut and runs back up to her dorm. I hear a scream so i assume that she has read the note. She runs down the stairs and throws her arms around my neck. I kiss her on the cheek and she sits on my lap.
I think about sending Holly an owl to find out where she is. I take Romilda's hand and lead her to my dorm. She takes a sit on my bed and i open my trunk. I take out parchment, a quill and ink. I write a quick little message on it and see that an Eagle owl is sitting in the window. Romilda unties the message and reads it aloud.
I know we haven't talked in ages. I have gone with Draco to the Manor for the Holidays.
Hermione sent me an owl about 15 minutes ago saying that you have started dating Romilda Vane. Congradulations!
Tell Romilda Merry Christmas from Draco and I.
Holly and Draco xx'
I untie the package. There is another one tied on. The slightly bigger has my name on it and the smaller one has Romilda on it.
